Alliant Promo Powder
A centennial of production experience and the most sophisticated quality control processes in the industry support each container of Alliant Smokeless Powder. A ballistics lab continuously examines and tests chemical composition, grain form, size and overall density to ensure consistency.
Promo has the same burning speed as the Red Dot offered by Alliant, but is denser and therefore requires a smaller box to obtain the same weight. It easily measures and constantly charges. ideal for 12 ga. loads but also for handgun loads. This can be used.
The most affordable 12 gauge target powder in the United States. Promo burns at the same rate as Red Dot, but is denser, necessitating a smaller bushing to get the same charge weight.
Loads of trap, skeet, and sports clay at a low cost.
Metering is simple, and charging is consistent.

Just started using promo for 1 oz trap loads. Started off using 18 grains for 16 yard trap, seems to work as good as the 700 X that I have been using but haven’t tried any other loads so far.

Alliant Promo is like the dirty little secret of reloading. Alliant doesn’t give much load data for it & it only comes in 8# kegs. It is also screaming cheap in an era when SURPLUS powder is almost as expensive as canister. I’m told that Promo is the result of Alliant’s QC testing and as such each batch/lot of Promo needs to have loads worked up as if it were a new powder to make sure your loads are still good.

This is almost the same as Red Dot powder without the Red Dot. It’s loaded charge weight for charge weight the same as Red Dot. The volume can be very slightly different. I find it much cheaper than Red Dot and just as versatile. I load 12ga, 20ga, 38, snubby 357 loads, 9mm, 380, 45 acp, 45 Colt and others all with Red Dot/promo with excellent results.

I use this powder in my 12 ga. trap loads for the 16 yard line and it is affordable and works well the only bad thing is every keg weighs different and has to be weighed to make sure you have the right charge weight.
